Evidently, I need to make the free-range door on the back of the chicken coop smaller. The younger goats are able to squeeze through. This enterprising pair went so far as to climb the ladder into the henhouse. Here they are being caught in the act.
These photos were taken while standing at N 37° 9′ 30.96″ W 121° 46′ 54.36″. This is along the Bald Peak Trail in Calero County Park at about 1600 feet. Hiking to this point from the Calero trailhead takes you through 1000 feet of elevation change. This is a nice little uphill trek that provides a lovely view of Santa Clara Valley to the North and the Santa Cruz Mountains to the South and West once you get to the top.
The nice thing about working for a virtual company is that I can do my job wherever I can find a broadband connection. So, if I want to take off for Southern California and do some sightseeing I can still get work done while at the hotel. I took my new Canon SD630 along and snapped lots of pictures of Rancho Mirage, Palm Springs Aerial Tramway, Joshua Tree National Park, Palms to Pines Highway, and San Diego Wild Animal Park. Yes, I did get some work done while out touring. Honest.
I’m really liking the SD630, by the way. It’s a nice little point-and-shoot with a big LCD screen on the back. It doesn’t have an optical viewfinder, but I rarely use viewfinders on point-and-shoots anyway. I picked up a fast 1 GB SDIO card that allows fairly rapid shooting thanks to the higher write speed.
